Birds and Berries Crib Quilt

Birds and Berries Crib Quilt

This is a simple quilt I created with a “Birds and Berries” jellyroll from Lauren & Jessi Jung. I started by creating 9-patch blocks and surrounding them with white. I wasn’t sure where I wanted to go with this. I had a charm pack of white so I decided to encompass them with jellyroll strips. In order to make the blocks the same size, I cut the interior strips to 1 & 1/2″ and left the outer strips 2.5″. Without borders it measures 40.5″ wide by 51″ long, I debating on what to do about a border, either alternating jellyroll strips with white. Maybe I should add a thin white border then a scrap border — what would you do? (Click image for larger view.)

This quilt is for my girlfriend who’s due in December, no one knows if she’s having a boy or girl…

      • Or maybe a row of half-size blocks to add to the length?? Then you’d have 8 blocks along the bottom – and the top if you wanted more length? I’m sure you’ll make a great decision – you have great taste!

  1. I agree with the other poster, a simple binding and I’d say you’re done. It is already a good size and since you’ve got a lot going on with this quilt, I wouldn’t add more action around the edge. Nice job!
